PM Modi congratulates New Zealand's Jacinda Ardern on her re-election

Oct 18, 2020 15:59 IST

PM Narendra Modi on Sunday congratulated Jacinda Ardern for getting re-elected as the Prime Minister of New Zealand. He added that he is looking forward to working on elevating the bilateral relations between the two countries. With 87 per cent of the votes counted, Ardern's center-left Labour Party has won 48.9 per cent of the vote, which means her party will likely secure the highest result that any party has achieved since the current political system was introduced in 1996, CNN reported. PM Ardern gave a powerful victory speech where she mentioned the nation has shown the Labour Party its greatest support in at least 50 years.
